Published: December 3rd, 1998

Ron Schoenau, Director

Other than previously approved exceptions, all official units of the University of Florida are expected to use a web address that ends in ufl.edu. Exceptions must be approved by the president or his designee (Ron Schoenau (nerhs@nervm.nerdc.ufl.edu).

Where possible, web addresses should reflect the university’s organizational structure. For example, the url for the Department of Exercise and Sports Science in the College of Health and Human Performance is http://www.hhp.ufl.edu/ess/. ¬†Exceptions are made on the basis of size and complexity of the university unit and anticipated web presence. For example, ISIS (the integrated student information system) needs a direct link because of its importance, complexity, usage. Therefore its url is http://www.isis.ufl.edu.

In addition all existing owners of ufl.edu subdomains must re-register by Wednesday, January 6, 1999, using the same procedure now in effect for new subdomain requests. This is to collect additional information to assist us in managing this University of Florida resource. The registration form is located at http://net-services.ufl.edu/domains
